Sephora: Gift Ideas

Tis' the gift giving season! I wanted to recommend six items that every makeup lover would love to have in their collection, including myself!

  1. UD Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette- I mean one word...GWEN! Also, I would recommend this for light to medium skin tones due to most of the palette being on the lighter neutral end.
  2. Too Faced - The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette- The shades are beautiful and it smells like chocolate, doesn't really get better than that..  
  3. Foreo Luna -In my opinion, this is way better and less harsh on your skin than a Clarisonic. They have a mini as well and other gadgets that are sure to be an excellent gift.
  4. Lorac Unzipped Gold - No longer sold at Sephora but I've added a link to Nordstrom and you can get free shipping! I really like any of the Unzipped palettes and Lorac shadows are just amazing.
  5. Too Faced - Most Loved Set - These are always great to give as it has the top sellers of the brand in one cute box. it is also a great way to test multiple items from a brand at a really good price point.
  6. Tarte -Shine Bright Statement Lash Essentials - This would make a great stocking stuffer, the quality is great, you get a travel size mascara and who doesn't love a little sparkle!?
I hope you found something on this list for someone or even yourself. Let me know what some of your favorites are!

Borghese: Fall and Holiday Collection



In case you are in the market to try a new line of cosmetics, I would recommend Borghese if you haven't tried their products. It is a beautiful Italian brand that carries cosmetics and skincare, they are well-known for the Fango mud mask which I have used as well.


The Borghese Cura di Vita Protettivo Protective Moisturizer SPF 15 is amazing and it protects your skin from the sun and works on premature and visible skin aging. I have used it for about 2 months and I love how it makes my skin feel. It quickly absorbs and i have used it as a 'primer' before apply my foundation and love the results. It really feels like a higher end product on your skin and over time, this will give you amazing results like I have seen with my own skin.


I think the name says it all with this Eclissare ColorRise Blush in Stunner! It's soooo beautiful for Fall to warm up your face and I would wear this all year round. It appears more shimmery in the pan but gives your cheeks a pretty glow. I even use it for a light contour and the formula is smooth and it applies evenly. It is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way! I think light to medium skin tones would get the most out of this shade.

I love neutrals, so naturally I would gravitate towards the Eclissare Color Eclipse 5 Shades of Torrid. It comes with all of the shades to to create a daytime or nighttime look, from natural to smoky this palette is very versatile. It is also pigmented and it applies really well. I have oily eyelids, so I use a primer. I love that they added a brow bone color (Wisp) with no shimmer and a dark shadow (Sear0 that can be used for a liner and to smoke out the look. Also, it has the perfect balance of mattes and shimmers. The shimmers do not have a chunky glitter but more of a pretty sheen.

Light swatches but the formula is buildable!

Dr. Brandt: Pores No More primer & PoreDermabrasion exfoliator

I wanted to share two amazing products that were sent to me by the offices of dr. brandt. I have used the products for 3 weeks to really give my honest opinion, per usual. I was expecting that I may like one but I really love both!

So, the pores no more primer is silky smooth and feels so nice on the skin. It goes on as a flesh time and absorbs quickly. I absolutely love that it comes with a pump to make it easy to judge how much product you want. I only apply this to my t-zone and let it absorb before apply my foundation. I have used it by itself and after moisturizing and it works well both ways. It made my foundation look flawless and it does last a little longer when I apply this formula.

It also left me shine free in my t-zone area as I have combination skin. This is one product that does what it says it will! 


What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates  

Next, I have used the PoreDermabrasion twice a week for 3 weeks. I really like how my skin feels afterward and look forward to applying it again. It has fine exfoliating elements that are not harsh on my skin. I use as directed and apply it all over my face, using circular motions to gently exfoliate and then I left it sit and penetrate into my skin to let it work its magic. It has a slight minty fresh feel on your face and I happen to like it. I rinse it off, once again using circular motions and my skin feels clean and smooth.

I really like how my foundation applies after this treatment and it helps with shine as well. This product is really worth every penny. 

Details from the Sephora website that I found to be true:
-Micro-size Pharmaceutical Grade Crystal: Blend of smaller crystals targeted to deep clean pores and improve skin texture.
-Caviar Lime Extract: Improves exfoliation; promotes a smoother, brighter, and even complexion.
-Salicylic Acid: Helps unclog pores.
-Lentil Seed Extract: Strengthens and tightens the appearance of pore walls while it refines the look of pores. 


What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

Review: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Hello lovelies!  I recently purchased this Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, yes, I think I am last one on the planet to purchase this! I am happy I finally tested it out because I love it and and it is a fraction of the cost of the Beauty Blender. 

I really like all of the angles of this sponge. It makes it really easy to get around your eyes, nose, and to quickly apply product to your entire face. Also, it does make your liquid foundation or BB cream go on flawlessly with the dabbing motion.


You can also use it to 'bake' your concealer easily with the angles of the sponge while using it dry. Overall, I think it is worth the $6 and works just as good as the Beauty Blender.

Have you used it? If so, what did you think?

I really appreciate each and every one of you who read my blog and take time to comment and/or share. Thank you so much!

Dusty Girls Review


Hey beautiful friends! I recently received three items from Dusty Girls. They have a natural product line that is cruelty free and made to better your skin! The products are made in Australia.

I received the Tinted Earth Cream that comes in two shades, light and medium. I selected light and it seems too light at first but it blends into the skin. The formula provides coverage like a BB cream would and sun protection. You can use a fairly small amount and it will be enough for your entire face. I personally liked the natural coverage and glow it gave me. The only down side to this product was the scent, it is natural so it does not have a pleasant scent. I wanted to point that out in case you are big on scents like I am. 


I also received the Natural Mineral Blush in 'Golden Delicious.' This is a really pretty golden terra cotta shade. The blush is very pigmented and can double as an eyeshadow. I think this shade can fit a lot of skin tones. It could probably even be used for a lighter contour. The photo does it no justice, so pretty!


Last but not least, I received the "Argyle Pink" Natural Mineral Lip Shine. It just gives your lips a pretty, natural shine with a hint of pink. It has an oily taste to it that I am not fond of but it is healthier to put on your lips than the other products we tend to purchase. I also loved the cute packaging!
